DALLAS -- Dallas-Fort Worth television anchor Gloria Campos is retiring after 30 years at WFAA-TV.

WFAA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/MDAyOt ) that Campos announced her retirement Wednesday. She plans to anchor her final broadcast on March 7.

Campos, who attended Southwest Texas State University, began her career at KGBT-TV in Harlingen, where she grew up. She became WFAA's first Latino anchor in 1984.
